You are right, it doesn't need to be patched. I don't have a kernel handy,
but Google Code Search <http://www.google.com/codesearch/> shows me it was
in the main kernel branch in 2.6.24 and was in 2.6.25, so I assume this has
been permanently fixed in later versions. While searching I did find a
number of other places where fixes similar to this one have been applied to
the 2.4 and 2.6 kernels, so the information might be useful in the future.

Have fun,
D.
